Discovery Farms Update

The Local Level Committee’s mission is:
“To bring people to the Arabian horse through local outreach.”

History: In 2019, AHA formed the Local Level Involvement Task Force with the mission stated above. At the 2020 AHA Convention, the Task Force was given standing committee status and became the Local Level Committee. Our goal is to have representatives from each AHA Region participate on the Local Level Committee to bring ideas as well as help implement the programs created by the committee in their respective Regions.  

Committee Members:

British Columbia: Shelley Morgan
Alberta: Hedi Klassen
Saskatchewan: Marvelle Machniak
